Journey Through France with the James Beard Foundation

Of all the culinary tours out there, we say this one should be on your radar. We hear the James Beard Foundation has teamed up with Royal Insider to create their first luxury culinary excursion: Taste the Best of France with Chef Traci Des Jardins: A James Beard Foundation Gastronomic Trip by Royal Insider

The dish (pun intended): For one week from April 29 through May 5, JBF chef Traci Des Jardins will lead 12 guests through Beaujolais, Burgundy and Champagne, with stays at luxury accommodations and meet-and-greets with chefs and winemakers.

The trip highlights include a barge cruise on the Burgundy canal; a private tour with a vintner in Gevrey-Chambertin with cellar tastings and a home-cooked dinner; a day-in-the-life of a countryside chèvrerie, from milking goats to making cheeses; and personal presentations from Michelin-starred chefs in which they will share products highlighting local terroir.
